Gutshaus Groß Toitin manor house - Gutshaus Gross Toitin, in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany
— Maximilian: “There are only a few luxury properties in the Prussian highlands that are open to the public. Showing people how the estate looked back in its heyday was the primary motivation to open it to guests.”
Interview By:

— Please tell us bit about the history of Gutshaus Groß Toitin.

Maximilian: “The manor itself was probably built in the second half of the 19th century and has a particularly attractive location at the outskirts of a settlement with essentially 270 degrees of open views onto a river valley.

Its history is quite diverse. It has a long, rather happy history. I think the first mentioning of the property was actually on Valentine’s Day in 1305, and then it prospered over several hundred years as a fiefdom.

Then came the tragic part for a lot of the German country estates. After the second world war, many of the East German estates had fallen into disrepair. We tried to rebuild all of the important architectural elements where possible to uphold and reestablish the classic character. Now it again gives you the authentic feeling of a Prussian country estate from the 19th century.”

— What was your inspiration to rent Gutshaus Groß Toitin out to holiday guests?

Maximilian: “We like having guests. This property is unique in the sense that in the Prussian highland, there are only a few luxury properties open to the public. There are a lot of simple hotels, but showing people how the estate looked back in its heyday was the primary motivation to open it up to guests.”

— How would you describe the atmosphere of Gutshaus Groß Toitin, with the parks around it?

Maximilian: “For one thing, the natural surrounding is a unique one. Off the Baltic Coast, we have a coastal climate with quickly changing skies, particularly in the morning and evening, with very strong colors. And you have the complete openness of space. The population is not very dense up there, so you can look for hundreds of meters through the countryside without any settlements disturbing the eye.

This is, in essence, what we tried to capture for the atmosphere in the house, working a lot with natural colors, and with textures rather than with glamour. The outside is untouched nature, which is unique in Germany, and it is reflected on the inside with the signature of 19th century German-Prussian architecture. The colors are blended to be soothing to the eye, and the shapes reflect the history of the property.”

— Can you briefly explain the type of services you offer to your holiday guests?

Maximilian: “The idea is that when you come to Gutshaus Groß Toitin, you have complete privacy, but on the other hand, you don’t have to be burdened with being on the property by yourself. Our basic services offer breakfast, which is an assortment of ecological and regional products — something I hope will provide an authentic experience of the Baltic Coast — and housekeeping. Beyond that, we can basically organise anything the guests wish, whether it be a private chef, a music session, a chauffeur, guided tours, and so on. We try to accommodate any request.”

— Please tell us a bit about the facilities at Gutshaus Groß Toitin?.

Maximilian: “Currently the estate of Gutshaus Groß Toitin has two renovated holiday villas that we rent out — the Manor House with four en-suite rooms and about 350 square meters, and what we call the Coachman’s Cottage.

The Manor House reflects more the grandeur of the 19th century, whereas the Coachman’s Cottage offers three en-suite rooms and has more of a country cottage character.

We put a lot of emphasis on gourmet services, with access to our wine cellar and large kitchens where guests are invited to cook. Much of what we have revolves around well-being in the sense of relaxing, eating well, sitting in front of one of the open fireplaces and enjoying a time out.”

— What has been the most rewarding to you personally about renting out the two holiday villas?

Maximilian: “That’s very simple — that our guests are happy and that they come back. For us it’s all about making holiday guests happy and providing them with an experience that exceeds their expectations, both in terms of facilities, but more importantly in terms of service.

Our staff try to accommodate each and every wish that guests may have. That’s what sets us apart from any regular hotel experience.”
